One of the most talked about blockbusters of 2005 almost had a female lead.

Gwen Stefani, who appeared on Thursday’s « Ellen Show, » briefly recalled auditioning for the role of Jane Smith on « Mr. » and Mrs Smith. « Angelina Jolie played the role in the film, which also stars Brad Pitt.

« Angelina hit me, » quipped the Grammy-winning songwriter, and the audience gasped collectively. While she didn’t reveal any details about the audition, she added, « That could be a different story. »

Watch Gwen Stefani perform on The Ellen DeGeneres Show below.

The Smiths, directed by Doug Limon, tell the story of a bored suburban couple whose marriage is in trouble after they find out they’re assassins from competing agencies and assigned to each other.

The film was a major commercial, with a reported $486 million worldwide. Its production, however, was a publicity spree, as it marked the beginning of Pitt’s romance with Jolie, when he was also married to actress Jennifer Aniston.

Although Stephanie’s « Mr. and Mrs. Smith » tryouts seemed to surprise most DeGeneres viewers, she’s brought up the subject before.

« It was between me and Angelina Jolie, and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s great. I got a chance here,' » she said of the project in a 2008 Vogue interview. « All the acting really feels like I can do something. Whenever I do, whenever I have it working, it’s like a show. You play for a while. That’s the essence of a movie: a series of moment. »
